There are tons of accommodation facilities for the students. They can either choose to have on-campus accommodation or rent out places outside. On-campus accommodation has its own perks as you can enjoy the college life to your fullest while sharing insights with your correspondences and other international students. The dorms can accommodate two to three students per room. But if you are someone who values privacy, then go for accommodations that are out of campus.

There are incentives to having your own accommodation since you won't have to adhere to the rules of the campus. You won't have to have any sort of obligation that on-campus accommodation has. To live outside, you'd have to provide address information and landlord information to the college as well as the police authorities. Once you have enrolled and produced a permit, you'll be allowed to live outside. The accommodations offered here can be quite comfortable but is hard to find. But if you can get in touch with a relevant broker, then finding accommodation won't be a trouble. But for that, you'd need to be aware of the Russian language for your own conveniences. The brokers will obviously charge you for the service but you can find accommodations to your liking.
